After a very short lived summer, here at The Hair Boutique we are plunging into Autumn. The trend this Autumn is vintage! 2017 is bringing back the 1940's and we're loving it. The vintage/pin up look can be worn by everyone and anyone. From BIG bouncy hair to a pixie cut pieced with a bandana.
Stay with us and we'll take you through how you can achieve both vintage hair and makeup. Oooh aren't we good?!
Vintage hair can be difficult to re-create especially for everyday wear so here is our simple broken down version for you, so you can rock this look any day of the week.
So, if you'd like to re create this look above here's what you'll need;
- Volume shampoo (We love our volume shampoo, can you tell?)
- Root boost powder/dry shampoo
- Barrel curling wand
- Firm hold hairspray
- Begin by washing your hair with a volume shampoo, try to use minimal conditioner as this will weigh your hair down and we don't want that!
- Then blow dry your hair using a round brush just to tuck those ends in and create a soft bouncy base.
- Once your hair is dry, sprinkle some root boost/dry shampoo directly onto your roots and rub the product in! You should notice your hair will start to have a backcombed appearance.
- Using your barrel curler. curl you entire hair. Make sure to take large setion as we want to save time and create big full curls.
- Then create a side parting. Once you have your parting begin to back comb your fringe from the root. After you have achieved the volume your looking for smooth the ends out and let the curl fall.
- Finish with firm hold hairspray!
Ok. It's makeup time! Luckily vintage makeup is super simple to achieve.
Here is what you need;
(Remember you can adapt whatever you like to suit you)
- Black gel/liquid eyeliner
- Red lipstick
- Begin with your usual foundation and concealer.
- Fill in your brows as usual.
- Using your liquid/gel eyeliner to create a wing/cat eye in the style that works for you. Here is a video for those of you who are unsure on how to do so. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBb05b9Kdo0
- Apply your mascara on to the top and bottom lashes (you could use fake eyelashes for added glam).
- Use your blush lightly on your cheek bones to give that slight 'rosey' appearance.
- Finally apply a red lipstick. If you find applying lipstick difficult, use a lip liner first to outline the shape of your lips and then go in with your lipstick to fill in the rest.
There you go! Everything you need to rock the 1940's style, we hpe you enjoy it as much as we do!
